Trump had announced his plans for re-election earlier this year and had elected Brad Parscale as an adviser for his campaign. During the 2016 elections, Parscale was Trump’s digital director. According to The Hill, Trump had openly talked about holding his presidency for eight years and had filled up his paperwork the same day he took office.

Meanwhile, Trump had recently visited the UK and had met the Prime Minister, Theresa May. He had also met Queen Elizabeth. Trump’s visit to Britain did not go unnoticed as protestors planned to humiliate him with a giant ‘Trump baby’ balloon design to mock him. But the tables were turned as the 45th
president of the United States managed to “insult our country, attack our NHS, embarrass our Queen, undermine our ‘special relationship’, humiliate our PM…and then smugly pose in Winston Churchill’s armchair”, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
